Jodie started out life in a family that had hugely diverse tastes. Her mother loving everything dance and disco and father who loved rock n roll and easy listening driving playlists. Jodie was immersed in a world of Ace of Base, Black Box, MC hammer, Whitney Houston, The Beatles and Dire Straits to name just a few which in time surely influenced her to, as a child become a huge Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and electronic dance music fan.
Since the age of 10, Jodie underwent singing lessons weekly and sang in productions of ‘ Oliver’, ‘Half a Sixpence’ and ’Showboat’ with local amateur dramatics society, Silhouettes which put on productions annually to sell out crowds at The Grimsby Auditorium. It was because of this Jodie began singing lessons and went from strength to strength, winning folk, musical theatre, pop and opera categories in music festivals around North East Lincolnshire.

Some where in the middle of all of the travel she also managed to achieve a 2.1 BA Hons Degree in Music and Media Management at the London Metropolitan University. It was during the university years that she bought her first pioneer controller and though she would give DJing a go!
Jodie had a massive love of trance, progressive and house whilst at uni and when practising DJing, she would regularly go clubbing in London to venues such as Turnmills, The cross, Fabric, Egg and heaven for their commercial house Monday student parties.
